Have you ever wished to communicate without words, and to be able to express yourself in completely new ways? Dialogue in Silence is an interactive playful experience in total silence where participants discover a repertoire of non-verbal expression with the help of deaf and hearing-impaired guides & trainers.
To enter this world, participants enter an area of complete silence wearing noise-canceling headsets, where they will discover a series of rooms full of tasks to discover the different parts of their bodies, facial expression and their own abilities in silent communication. The tasks, easy to handle for everyone, guide the visitors through a journey into their own abilities of expressions, until they use their own silent voice loudly and proudly for everyone in the group to hear.
The facilitators, who by virtue of their experience and their expertise in sign language are masters in non-verbal communication, show participants how to hear and listen in silence and help to change their mindset towards “others”. Dialogue in Silence enables a dialogue between hearing and non-hearing people while re-defining disability as ability and creates an environment that helps to discover openness and empathy within ourselves.
Why is it so special and fascinating?
Dialogue in Silence enables a dialogue between hearing and non-hearing people while re-defining disability as an ability by showing the visitors a world beyond their comfort zone. The playful approach will make sure the profound experience unravels in a light way that everyone can enjoy until the rich and colorful world of deaf culture can be discovered in a translated dialogue session towards the end.
